This article will inform you about the sport-related volunteering opportunities available at the University.

The Sport and Recreation department offer a range of opportunities for students to get involved in coaching and officiating, developing their skills, and working in the local community.

Who can volunteer

Any University of Portsmouth students can volunteer. You can do as much or as little as you like - we will try to fit it around your life and University commitments.

We believe volunteering at University is about enjoying yourself, helping others, making new friends and gaining qualifications/experience to use in your future career pathway.

Opportunities available

There are so many different opportunities - whether it's coaching in local schools and sports clubs with our coaching programme, UP for Sport coaching, officiating in the FA Referee Hub, being an Intern with our Sports Development Team, or supporting our Campus Sport and Get Active, Stay Active participation programmes by promoting and organising what we offer.

See the coaching and volunteering pages to find out more about these opportunities.

What to get involved?

Please register your interest on the database website with some of your personal details to create your own profile.

If you don't already have a University DBS check (the new name for a CRB criminal records check), you'll need to pop in and see the Sports Development team at the Spinnaker Sports Centre to complete this - it's free and only takes around 5 minutes to complete.

Once you've registered, you will need to spend 2 minutes adding your qualifications and experience to your profile. As soon as this is done, you can start signing-up to some of our available opportunities.

Please don’t hesitate to sign-up today.
